Ah yes. Dr Honeydew and his faithful assistant Beaker. “Muppet labs… where the future is being made today”
They were (and presumably still are, although they seem to have slipped from the public eye of late) scientists ahead of their time - Beaker was very successfully cloned (multiple times!) in the copying machine, and who can forget such scientific advances as:
[li]Edible Paperclips[/li][li]Gorilla detector[/li][li]Teleporter[/li][li]Germ enlarger[/li][li]Electric banana sharpener[/li][li]Electric sledgehammer (only attacks wimpy nerds)[/li][li]Nuclear Shaver[/li][li]The discovery of Bunsonium[/li][li]Turing gold into cottage cheese[/li][li]Magnetic carrots[/li][/ul]
And, of course, many, many more.
Allow me to echo the sentiment shared in the article: “‘the kind of scientists you would like to be but never quite dared to,’” and to add one more invention to their list of amazing scientific advances (from the original Muppet Movie), Insta-grow pills.
What do you suppose would have happened to the “success rate” for Pigs in Space missions had they brought on certain scientific consultants…?
